Skiing, snowboarding, and the Sundance Film Festival – these three things make Park City, Utah the ultimate destination for athletes, filmmakers, and nature lovers each year. And when you become a homeowner in one of the city’s top gated communities, you can enjoy the best of Park City life year-round.

Here are three of the best-gated communities in Park City:


Located eight miles away from Old Town Park City, Promontory is the pinnacle of luxury mountain living. This elegant and multi-generational enclave sits at 6,500 to 7,400 feet above sea level, covering around 7,200 acres of land. Its location offers homeowners easy access to Salt Lake City’s International Airport, as well as unparalleled views of Park City and the Uinta Mountains.

Promontory is best known for its world-class and family-oriented amenities. It has everything, from the scenic Mountain Garden Park and fully-equipped Equestrian Center to award-winning clubhouses and community centers like The Shed, The Village Clubhouse & Village Spa, and even a “Kid’s Only” Cabin. The community’s crowning glory, however, are its two golf courses: the Dye Canyon Golf Course and the Nicklaus Painted Valley Golf Course, the second and third best golf courses in Utah.

Homebuyers will find a wide variety of housing options in Promontory, from buildable lots for custom homes to vacation cabins.


Conveniently situated a few minutes off I-80 and Kimball Junction, Glenwild is one of the most exclusive private communities in Park City. Despite its direct access to major highways, Glenwild is an intimate and private residential neighborhood that covers only 1,600 acres and 196 homesites. This provides each homeowner uninterrupted views of the Wasatch range and the grand ski resorts of Park City and Deer Valley.

Aside from offering state-of-the-art amenities like a fully equipped tennis court, swimming pool, fitness center, spa, and country club, Glenwild is home to a Tom Fazio-designed 18-hole championship course, ranking first among all the golf courses in the state. A portion of Mountain Trails Foundation’s trail system and the Swaner Nature Preserve also fall within Glenwild’s borders, which makes it a haven for avid cyclists, hikers, and outdoor enthusiasts.

If you’re interested in purchasing a property in this highly exclusive neighborhood, you’ll find a wealth of gorgeously designed homes with architectural styles ranging from rustic contemporary to mountain modern. But regardless of style, Glendale’s Architectural and Design Committee ensures that all homes have as little environmental impact as possible.

The Colony

The Colony at White Pine Canyon is a perfect example of luxury mountain living. This award-winning community sits on 4,600 acres of land filled with rich aspen groves, crystal-clear streams, and beautiful meadows. The Colony’s 274 home sites blend harmoniously with the expertly preserved natural landscapes.

Its favorable location allows homeowners and residents to enjoy the best of Utah’s four seasons. During winter, you can enjoy ski-in/ski-out privileges to The Canyons, while spring and summer are the best times to explore the neighborhood’s network of hiking, biking, and horseback riding trails, including the 26-mile Mid-Mountain Trail. Film and food connoisseurs will be glad to know that Park City’s Main Street, home to the annual Sundance Film Festival and a first-class restaurant scene, is only a few minutes away from this premier gated community.
